election. elizabeth warren wins big in massachusetts. fields: yes, i know, i know, yeah. tavis: debbie stabenow holds onto her seat in michigan and claire mccaskill beats back these crazy comments in missouri to hold onto her seat and there are other stories i could talk about. >> and then there's some women who might not have a vote i have actually voted for, nebraska being one of them. tavis: precisely. i take that. i raise that only because not just early in the political realm, but i looked at the kinds of work you've done, the kinds of issues that you've worked on, and obviously all these issues are linked to politics at some point. give me some sense about why you have chosen those kinds of issues to be the work that you do when you're not acting. >> again, it's such a i'll try to make it a shorter story, but it's a long story. all of these characters that i've done throughout my life have changed me and awakened me and certainly "norma rae" began to change me in a very big way, also the fact that marty ritt came into my life and made me more aware of what the world really was.
